Hello, i played some of the games from CoG and i always found the concept very interesting, eventually i was thinking of trying to make one story myself. I have never written any sort of story before, but i have some ideas to try something out.
Anyway, i had this story in mind involving some sort of mercenary or hired killer that can have missions in different locations all over the world. However, i am struggling in creating some sort of overarching plot connecting at least some of these together since when you are hired to do something, you are expected to finish things there, and move on to your next assignment.
I was planning that each job you are hired for would be like a small story that would be finished on itself, making the story be more like several unrelated stories joined together.
Due to different factions, characters and locations in these, i would like to ask if in this type of story such a story arc would be necessary? Would the game feel too simple and unconnected without one?
